Student Testimonial: This is Louis’s story/ 毕业学生感言(一)


I still remember the old Chinese proverb “Never forget the beginning and finally you can achieve a good result.” It is this chance of fate that allowed us to meet here. My name is Louis and I come from a small town in Chongming district with the lowest GDP in this region.

I am glad destiny introduced me to Shanghai Sunrise and am also thankful to our village head who recommended me for a Shanghai Sunrise scholarship. The funding from Shanghai Sunrise supported me during my high school and university life. Time flies: Over the past seven years, I have transformed from an ignorant teenager to a white-collar worker who has just entered the working world. Through all the ups and downs, I am always grateful the help I received from Shanghai Sunrise.

My parents divorced when I was young and I never heard from them again. As the Chinese saying goes “children in poor families learn things early”. Indeed, I can understand this expression from my adult viewpoint. The sarcasm, bullying and humiliation I had to endure as a child beat my soul like a whip. Among my peers, my family situation was particularly hard. With my parents absent from my life, it was Shanghai Sunrise who silently accompanied me through this journey. I am so glad I was able to get through the hardest time of my life.

Shanghai Sunrise is a highly attractive platform: like a mother she helped me with my spiritual growth and like a father she presented me with a prospect for the future. Thanks to the scholarship and the annual activities organized by Shanghai Sunrise, I could overcome my difficulties and was able to realize my true potential. The communication between me and my sponsor also significantly improved my sense of responsibility. I grew with Shanghai Sunrise and now feel I am a member of the Shanghai Sunrise family. As such I want to give back to the community.

Today, I myself am a volunteer for Shanghai Sunrise. In my free time I participate in Shanghai Sunrise fundraising events, encourage more people to take part in Shanghai Sunrise and help my fellow students finish their studies.

Even as time goes by, love is forever. My gratitude comes from the people who helped me, and I will pass this on with love. I believe the charitable career of Shanghai Sunrise will be carried forward because of people like us.

Acknowledgements: Thank you to my grandparents, I would not be me without you. Thank you to my community through which I got to know Shanghai Sunrise. Thank you to Shanghai Sunrise for letting me be part of the family.

我是陈良友,来自于全上海市GDP最落后的崇明宝岛某个小镇,感恩缘分让你我在这一个大家庭相遇结识!上海初升的太阳是一个充满爱的力量和温暖的大家庭,在这里我成长着,收获着;也在这里我感恩于社会上的好心人士,是你们总伴我成长。

认识初阳要感谢老村长为我推荐,这是缘分的起点。

我的父母至幼离异,各自鸟兽散,至今未归,杳无音讯。俗语云:穷人家的孩子 懂事早!的确,很小开始我就能看得懂大人的眼色,那些冷嘲热讽,那些欺凌霸辱,都像皮鞭一样抽打我的灵魂。同龄孩子中家庭困难的我,经历过冷风雨,经历过寒冻天,也经历过酷热晒。

但在认识初阳之后,初阳的资助项目陪伴了我整个高中大学生活。转眼间,我已经从无知少年到初入社会的小白领。一路风风雨雨走来,内心总是无比感恩初阳这样的慈善组织。初阳陪伴,保驾护航。是初阳默默陪伴着我,我很庆幸我这艘小船能顺利地航行完了人生中最艰难的时刻。

初阳是一个非常具有吸引力的平台,是她犹如母亲细心般地帮助我心灵的长,是他犹如父亲宽厚般地为我打开新的视野。结对帮扶中让我正确的面对自己的困难,每年的活动中让我相信自己的价值存在,与资助人书信交流磨练了自己的责任心。

这样的缘分始终伴随着我,我在初阳不断成长。在这里,我积极参加初阳的义卖活动,我懂得了感恩,感恩那些帮助过我的人。现如今,我成为了初阳的志愿者!在闲暇时,我用自己的实际行动去影响周围的朋友、公司、家人...通过身体力行的努力让更多人加入到初阳帮助我的学弟学妹完成他们的学业。这份恩情,来自于曾经帮助过我的人,我要把这份恩情以爱的形式传递下去。星星之火,可以燎原。我坚信初阳的慈善事业因为有我们这样的角色能够得以发扬光大。

在这里,我要感谢我的爷爷奶奶,感谢他们始终的陪伴和帮助;也要感恩社会,认识了初阳这样的大家庭。
